Pearls of Wisdom
In a desperate plea for April showers to bring May flowers, after today’s monsoon, tis’ the season to start playing dress up. May Day is tomorrow!, and along with blooming flowers comes itchy eyes and throats, and a host of springtime festivities. As the fashion kingdom prepares for the annual Met Gala, fashion’s answer to Prom, it’s promise is to attract a lineup of commanding evening dresses on May 5th, which got me thinking. You need to have serious stamina to pull off an oversize frock. Also consider that with May comes Mother’s Day, Graduation ceremonies, weddings, and other merrymaking activities followed soon after by the fast and furious preparations for June i.e: the annual shipping of your children, and their prospective trunks, off to camp.
I’m tired already just thinking about it.
Considering all these events and commitments that are infiltrating your calendar, my suggestion would be to do a cardio workout a few days a week to get your body in tip-top physical form, and stick to your guns when it comes to personal style. If all your fashion options fail, and you can’t pull off the heavy weight gowns, why not try some pearls.
No longer just your grandmother’s gem of choice, pearls are losing their stuffy, old-school reputation and holding their own as the bauble for the cool-girl set this spring. Reimagined in two-tone detailing and larger-than-life shapes, these next-wave jewels are equal parts sophisticated and modern — ready to make their way into your daily accessories rotation. Whether you’re a self-confessed lover of saltwater cultured pearls or a fan of freshwater cultured pearls, elegant pearl jewelry is timeless. If you are in the market for the most fabulous pearls, check out the selection at soon to be live Mesenso who has an elegant selection.
For your shopping desires, I have culled these gorgeous iterations, from evil-eye earrings to multi-stacked rings, all begging for a primo spot in your jewelry box this season. But, don’t fret if your budget’s not suited for the real deal, because there’s a mix of thrifty costume pieces and splurge-y designer items ahead. Grandma’s gonna be so jealous.
